DAWN McDUFFIE has an MFA from Vermont College and has taught creative writing at Detroit’s Scarab Club and Opera House. Her poems have appeared in Rattle, Driftwood, Diner, The MacGuffin, Feminist Studies, and the recent anthology, Mona Poetica. An essay, “Humor in Poetry,” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Her first chapbook, People in My Head, won the Heartlands Today contest in 1997. She taught high school English in Detroit for twenty-five years. Her second book, Carmina Detroit (Adastra Press, 2006) is a sequence of nineteen poems in four sections that takes the medieval Carmina Burana as a model to allow the poet to apply some of those themes, Chance, Spring, and Love, to modern day Detroit.
